INTRO

C Cmaj7 C6 Caug Dm7 G7 Dm7 G7

C Cmaj7 C6 Caug Dm7 G7 Dm7 G7

 

VERSE 1

C F

Won't you look up at the skyline

C Em

at the mortar, block, and glass,

F D/F# Gsus4 Gsus2 G G7

and check out the reflections in my eyes.

C F

See they always used to be there

C Em

even when this was all was grass,

F D/F# G7sus2 G7

and I sang and danced about a high rise.

 

PRE CHORUS

F G /C /B /A /G

And you were laughing at my helmet hat

F Dm7/G G7 Dm7/G G7 Dm7/G G7 Dm7/G

Laughing at my torch.

 

CHORUS

C Cmaj7 C6

Go ahead and laugh all you want

Caug Dm7 G Dm7

I got my philosophy

G C Cmaj7 C6

And I trust it like the ground.

Caug Dm7 G

That's why my philosophy

Dm7 G C/G G7 Dm7/G

Keeps me running when I'm falling down.

 

VERSE 2

I see that there is evil, and I know that there is good,

but the in betweens I never understood.

Would you look at me I'm crazy, but I get the job done.

I'm crazy but I get the job done, and I say,

 

CHORUS

 

BRIDGE

Am Eaug

I pushed you cause I loved you guys.

Am7 Am6/E

I didn't realize

Gm Bb/C C Bb/C C Bb/C C

you weren't having fun.

F G

And I dragged you up the stairs and I told you to fly.

F G

You were flapping your arms, then you started to cry,

Am Bb

you were too high, oh too high.

 

C Cmaj7 C6 Caug Dm7 G7 Dm7 G7

 

VERSE 3

Now you take this all for granted.

You take the mortar, block, and glass,

And you forget the speech that moved the stone.

And it's really not that you can't see

the forest for the trees,

You never been out in the woods alone.

So you can laugh all you

 

CHORUS

Want to, but I've got my philosophy

And I love you you're my friend.

But you got no philosophy.

Now it's time for this song to end.
